May 27, 2015, 06:00 ET from Orbotech Ltd.

YAVNE, Israel, May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ORBOTECH LTD. (NASDAQ: ORBK) today announced that a major Pacific printed circuit boards manufacturer specializing in IC substrate and High Density Interconnect (HDI) PCB production, has placed a large order, valued at approximately $8 million, for multiple systems that are expected to be delivered within the second quarter of 2015. 

The order comprises multiple units of Orbotech's leading Direct Imaging systems, including the newly launched Paragon Ultra™ 300 and the Nuvogo™ 800. The systems were selected for their match with the customer's requirements for high performance and adaptability for a wide range of resist types for both IC packaging and HDI applications.

"We are gratified to have been selected by this esteemed customer, which requires high production capabilities and, in particular, the capability to expose extremely fine lines at very high quality", commented Mr. Arik Gordon, President of Orbotech's PCB Division. Mr. Gordon added: "With the increasing need for advanced products that demand more complex applications, Orbotech continues to offer solutions with very reliable performance, first class customer service and support and attractive total cost-of-ownership - all of which were strong determining factors for this leading customer."

About Paragon™ Ultra 300
Featuring the leading-edge performance of Orbotech's Large Scan Optics (LSO) Technology, Paragon Ultra 300 Direct Imaging (DI) system delivers the highest imaging accuracy and yields for today's most complex IC substrate applications including, Flip-Chip CSP, BGA/CSP and modules manufacturing.  It provides fast throughput using enhanced electronics and a powerful laser system and provides exceptional results on both conventional and DI resists.

About Nuvogo 800
Nuvogo™ 800 is a next-generation Direct Imaging (DI) solution capable of imaging on almost every resist type, affording maximum flexibility to PCB makers. Powered by MultiWave Laser Technology™, Nuvogo 800 generates a multi wavelength laser beam for optimal line structure. This provides PCB manufacturers the ability to choose lower-cost resist types in order to further reduce total operating costs.

This high-productivity machine is able to achieve up to 7,000 panels/day/line at unprecedented quality.  Superior line quality and registration accuracy is achieved through Orbotech's field-proven Large Scan Optics (LSO) Technology™. Suitable for the most advanced HDI production, Nuvogo 800 ensures a high depth-of-focus critical for maximizing yields in increasingly challenging production environments. The combination of super high-productivity, flexibility to use almost any resist and unmatched yields results in the lowest possible cost-per-print and significantly lowers the system's total cost of ownership.
